Tips for cooking lobster
We follow these few tips to make it a success…
Bake on day of purchase. Ideally, you cook live lobsters the same day they are purchased. Because their flesh begins to spoil soon after death, they must be kept alive before being cooked. They are stored in the refrigerator. Not interested in the idea of cooking live lobsters? Fishmongers can do this for us.
Take salt water for cooking. The lobster is boiled in salted water for 10 to 11 minutes until the shell turns orange.
Use a large pot. Lobsters should be completely submerged in water while cooking. And if you don’t have enough space to put all the lobsters in the pan, there’s only one solution: cook them all at once. When the shells are bright orange and the antennae come off easily, they are ready.
